    Interesting, how does it compare to an atlatl? Looks like it uses a bigger dart and a string instead of a solid throwing stick, but are the skill needed in using it and the accuracy the same?

    I think that the atlatl has more range and power but I also think that a the Swiss arrow eouwo work best if the arrow was of bigger diameter fight real size of a mop or broom handle.

    It is a much better military tool to maim and break up formation than a precision hunting instrument...that said, very good job Bishop!
